Mafalda Muñoz's Modern Flair
The Spanish interior decorator loves one-of-a-kind design.
“I learn from the place where I’m working and the people I’m working for,” says the interior decorator Mafalda Muñoz, 30. It’s a piece of wisdom she picked up from her late father, the architect Francisco Muñoz Cabrero, whose warm but modern style changed the landscape of Spanish interior design. (Her mother, Sabine Déroulède, worked with him and also founded a store specializing in Spanish artisanal goods.) Muñoz, who lives in Madrid and has outfitted a series of homes herself, recently opened a gallery, Machado-Muñoz, with her husband, the photographer Gonzalo Machado. The couple enlists local artists and designers to create limited-edition furniture and design objects. “The idea is to bring these products to all of the international fairs—Basel, Design Miami,” Muñoz says. “We want to be a platform for Spanish design.”
